  • Google execs foresee omnipresent robots, huge mobile ad sales [View news story]
    I think Google is driving at the C3PO R2D2 robot model and not so much of a Terminator skynet version. What will most likely happen is the Government will take the Google worker robot and add jets & weapons to it as in Iron Man.

  • More on ING agreement: ING breached U.S. sanctions by moving billions of dollars through banks in Manhattan from the early 1990s until 2007 on behalf of Cuban and Iranian clients, among others.

    Did ING go with the Kramer defense? The clients weren't Cubans, they were Dominicans!

  • "The principal of an (Iranian) oil embargo is agreed. It is not being debated anymore," says an EU diplomat. Traders expect Iran will find buyers for the roughly 18% of its crude that now goes to the EU - most likely in Asia - but will need to offer substantial discounts. Expectations of such a move have already hit the rial, which is off 40% vs. the dollar over the past month.  [View news story]
    If the Asian countries continue to support Iran we may have to do a partial default on the Treasuries they own....WW3???

  • Walgreen May Acquire Rite Aid [View article]
    Obviously most of you are upside down on your mortgage and can't see straight. RAD owns most of the locations in the portfolio and RAD has very few stores compared to WAG.

    1. RAD continues to improve on its own
    2. WAG buys RAD in an all cash offer north of 1.60 per share.

  • AMR CEO Tim Horton admits that the carrier could become a takeover target candidate from "opportunists" in a letter to employees that was more direct in tone and less defiant than previous communications about the firm's prospects out of bankruptcy. He also writes that AMR will restructure debt and aircraft leases, ground planes, and will "most certainly end the process with fewer people than we have today." Shares trade down 4.4% on the day on their inevitable path to being worthless. [View news story]
